Write 350 words, excluding works cited and references, on the following topic:
Leti Volpp discusses two legal cases that involved a legal strategy known as “cultural defense.” According to Volpp, what are the problematic outcomes that resulted from certain use of “cultural defense” and what should be the criteria for determining when a “cultural defense” can be used effectively? Make sure you discuss the above by clearly noting how exactly a “culture defense” was deployed in the two litigations and how the two cases differed in their approaches to “cultural defense.”
